Welcome everyone. Glad you are hear. If you haven’t done so already, make sure to write your intro blog post, you can call it “intro post” or something along those lines. In your post, let us know who you are, what you’re interested in, why you’re taking this class, etc. Include your impression of the syllabus and the course packet. Which parts of the class are you looking forward to? What questions do you have concerning the class.
There are three parts to Response 1.
Part 1. Title your post “Response 1”. Go on to write a summary-response to the first reading. This should be two paragraphs long. The first paragraph should summarize what you consider to be the main argument that Postman is making in the essay. The second paragraph should be your response to it. Here, you should describe your thoughts and feelings concerning the essay you’ve read. Feel free to relate what he is saying to your observations about the world we live in today.
Part 2. Write another paragraph where you go on to explain your thoughts and reactions to the first part of The Corporation (you can watch it again here) that we watched in class.
Part 3. Do you see any connection between the reading and film? Explain any way you see they are connected and elaborate as best you can.
This work is due before class on Monday. Have a good weekend. See you then.
